Liverpool moved to acquire a new midfielder in this summer’s transfer market. The second addition, after Alexis Mac Allister, was Hungarian midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai, formerly of RB Leipzig.
Despite being in the Premier League for the first time, he has been impressive from the opening day against Chelsea and has continued to show his level in both attack and defense in the following games against Bournemouth and Newcastle in which the team went down to 10 men.
For a midfielder who has also been compared to club legend Steven Gerrard, 30-year-old defender Willi Orban, captain of RB Leipzig and teammate of his Hungarian national team, has not been surprised by his success since joining the club.
“Football is like that, meaning that if an opportunity comes, you have to take it. It’s a big deal that he signed for a big club like Liverpool,”
“Even though he changed teams and countries, he fit in and was accepted in no time. Let’s just say it didn’t surprise me. I know what a great guy he is.”Nemzeti Sport
He is accustomed to pressing from the front with a style of play similar to Red Bull Salzburg and RB Leipzig and Liverpool, and can run with it until the end of the game. He continues to respond to Klopp’s use of one-touch passing, clever dribbling, and powerful shooting.
Can he continue to put in performances that will go down in Anfield history and become a player who can stand alongside Gerrard?
